We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

Let's see if "Fred Mullin" and the other fictional, yet vocal opponents of Tharp show up -Read More oh wait, they won't - Because "Mullin" and many other commenters on the Patch stories on Tharp were actually our last Superintendent Hughes and his minion Bill Attewell who tried to "drag down The Greendale School District." Their words, not mine.

Posted by David Cotey , September 25, 2013 at 03:11 PM Is this really still headlines, almost 5Read More months ago Tharp had coffee? And one of his "minions" spouting off about it. Is this the best Greendale Patch can do?
The community engagement group Forward Thinking is planning a kickoff event at the Boerner Botanical Gardens concert in the park at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 22.

Our most gracious thanks to this Whitnal public servant and her bringing our Greendale publicRead More servants to engage with our village. Many of us will be marking our calendars to come and observe and initiate our matters for them to hear and act upon.

Fellow citizens commence to your calendars to come and observe and initiate our matters for them to hear and and answer to their public.

Some of the highest pay in the region, plus bennies, summers off. Sounds pretty good.
Patroon July 24, 2013 at 04:43 pm
One point that needs clarification is that the raise was given after the survey. Did the surveyRead More results impact the decision to pay above the average in the region? Did the budget for the kids programs, curriculum, books, etc go up the same rate? I don't want to see cuts to pay teachers more unnecessarily - and what about administration? A 3% raise for a 50,000 teacher is pretty different from someone making 110,000.

I am self employed. 100% of myself reports unfair compensation on a recent survey. Please do aRead More report on me with large graphics and fancy fonts. Not these leaching cry baby teaches that receive full time all year round pay for 8 months of labor with full benefits and a frickin pension. Oh, did I type I pay their salary? Guess I just did.
Mercury July 26, 2013 at 06:13 pm
To my fair subject Steve, You made a crucial mistake in your service to self employment. YouRead More report a 100% unfair compensation, you did not become a public servant in our Greendale School District. To our Patch, do not busy yourself with the ins and outs of the graphics. Do your reporting and town crier service to our fair village. There is much news afoot that is not being reported here but most certain being discussed about our public officials in our Broad Street fair merchant place. We will be out in force at our fair Greendale Market the morn of Sat spreading the news of the goings on to their subjects.

We must applaud the schools for investing in our children's education. Parents should remember thatRead More experts say the musical experiences of students outside of school typically carry more weight than what is presented in classes and ensembles. I am sure the $14,000 spent on music (violin?) books for one elementary school is not quite as paradoxical as it appears on the surface. Although, it does appear as though Highland View is getting some extra-special attention from the front office in the last year or so.
Mercury June 19, 2013 at 04:51 pm
Spending more for music even going over budget makes my village a better place to reside. We loveRead More and support the concerts of our students of my Greendale. If this goes over budget, We must have every confidence the money can be found for this well worthy expense. Three cheers to our leaders to spend for music.
Preliminary plans to upgrade the entryways at Highland Park and the district's other two elementary schools are in the works.
Jason Patzfahl June 19, 2013 at 03:54 pm
"School Board member Anne Szcygiel urged administration to get input from all stakeholdersRead More should the upgrade plans move forward." ~ Who exactly are and are NOT stakeholders? Do parents of children in these schools have more at stake than non-parents? Could this plan be in jeopardy if home owners who do not have children in these schools don't want to pay for the security upgrade?
Mercury June 19, 2013 at 04:46 pm
We in our Village support safety for all of our children. Our Village applauds a increase inRead More security for these schools. We will and must support this upgrade even a tax levy vote will pass in the next Election Day. Three cheers for this decision by our school board and administration. Our village will and must vote Yes.
Patroon June 23, 2013 at 08:27 pm
Why is Mrs. Szcygiel asking these questions and in effect delaying? Jason is right on this one.Read More Why are they studying security upgrades? Why isn't this moving forward now? Funds are being found for other priorities. Isn't the safety of students and then faculty important? Lets do this now. Cheers Patroon
Greendale High School sent off its Class of 2013 graduates Sunday.

Wonderful news for our fair Village. Cudos to Mr. Lodes, his teachers and assistants and of courseRead More the parents of the students. Our hats are off to the all of GHS.

Wonderful news for our fair Village. Cudos to Mr. Lodes, his teachers and assistants and of courseRead More the parents of the students. Our hats are off to the all of GHS. Mr. Lodes' address was just the greatest. The other " School administrator" well to be charitable as we must, it was his first speech and we can only pray that things will improve. The students were wonderful and all of us in our village have them in our prayers.

Wonderful effort and support. How generous of our Greendale School District staff to make donationsRead More as well!
Mercury June 9, 2013 at 05:16 pm
This is a wonderful effort and support. Our Greendale Public School employees are generous and wellRead More meaning and never should be taken for granted. We were told Friday evening at the Foundation fundraiser our school board is reducing this program and making the teacher of this program teach in the social studies program. They are there for the credit but are also undercutting our ACCESS kids. Why is this happening and we do not know of this?
Mandy A. June 10, 2013 at 05:36 pm
If that is true, I certainly would like to hear the BOE's reasoning. These kids deserve more andRead More Dan R has done a wonderful job reaching and making a difference in the lives of Greendale youth. Aren't we supposed to be making sure ALL students have the opportunity to achieve to their fullest potential?
Mercury May 22, 2013 at 05:33 pm
We must and should honor our veterans for their service to our country and now to our village. ThisRead More is work that should be at the front of the line of our school district and my village. Three cheers for our Village President Mr. Hermes and our School Administrator Dr. Tharp and their efforts to make this project a reality sooner rather than later.
June Crawford May 28, 2013 at 10:54 pm
Mr. Hermes and Dr. Tharp should just give this to our veterans and say thank you !
Vigilante June 12, 2013 at 11:46 am
How bout actually helping veterans instead of building another statue. I get it believe and amRead More actually retired military. But please people call and write your congressman and stop having them steal benefits from our active soldiers. For God sakes no hot meals in a mess hall in Afghanistan because they are leaving next year....Bull@#@$ I closed bases and had a hot meal till the last day we signed it over to host country. All these politicians should be tard and feathered how they have squandered tax payers money. Our miltary is in shambles do to the over exposure of sexual assualt witch hunts. While Benghazi and the losers who killed our diplomat and troops walk away scot free. Fort Hood why is that work place violence and the killer collects his military paycheck....execute this Muslom pig already.. And lastly people where tell me where is our VA or any group demanding an inquest into the Chinhook that went down days after osma got killed which killed 20 of our elite forces many who where on that took part in putting OBL to sleep. Why did 8 Afghani's not board that flight huh did they know it was going to crash..... We don't need another staue we need answers people..... STAND UP!!!!!!
Mercury May 19, 2013 at 10:19 pm
Our Village is proud of this young person. She is a tribute to the hard work of our teachers andRead More school leaders every year. In our Greendale and in Milwaukee. Congratulations to this achievement.
